GAME of Thrones star Owen Teale has con­fessed he was wrong to leave his na­tive Wales to fol­low his dream of be­com­ing an ac­tor, as the Prince of Wales cel­e­brated Welsh cre­ative tal­ent.

Teale said the Welsh cap­i­tal Cardiff is now the “des­ti­na­tion” af­ter be­ing im­pressed by Royal Welsh Col­lege of Mu­sic and Drama stu­dents who per­formed for their pa­tron Charles.

The prince had ar­rived at Cardiff Cen­tral sta­tion by steam lo­co­mo­tive and was treated to a 70th birth­day concert by bud­ding mu­si­cians, ac­tors and some for­mer stu­dents. The in­vited au­di­ence en­joyed recitals of Chopin and Bach, Shake­speare so­lil­o­quies and or­ches­tral and choir per­for­mances of pop­u­lar tunes, as well as the mad­cap sketches. Teale de­scribed the pro­duc­tion as “fan­tas­tic”.
